Forum: etree Subject: What about an etree concert at 1000 shows?

The etree community is doing such a great job of building a public archive, I was thinking that the Internet Archive, etree, and maybe eff, and maybe a couple of other organizations could sponsor a concert of Great Bands (read: those that have agreed to have their performances archived) be the 1000th concert.

Maybe at the DNA Lounge or Fillmore in SF or something.

what I am looking for is a general read on this, and if there would be volunteers that would be interested in putting it together. (it is alot of work, and I am not sure where the money will come from yet).

Wow, but 1000 is coming up too fast (441 shows in archive from the latest #)!
Maybe 5000 would give more lead-time.

Still, the bands are disparate enough and touring heavily enough that this would probably be a hard thing to pull together though, even assuming someone with experience volunteers.

Maybe instead, you could stage an event where a DJ spins tracks that are all available through the archive? There could also be some HDs full of shows, some burners and a stack of blanks. :)
The music part would be analogous to the Vault Party events that the Grateful Dead have been having for their live releases. The burning part is in the spirit of the Bookmobile.

Or you could go totally informal, and just have a drive over on the etree lists and here to have get togethers with local etree/archive friends on some particular evening.

I think it's fabulous! Quite an incentive to keep importing all the uploads :)

I definitely agree with Jon on this, a great idea!
